Prometheus being the brother of Zeus was ordered by Zeus to go down to earth and create man This Shows how the creation of men came about in Greek mythology He also taught the humans everything they needed to know
"Prometheus, the clever Titan, created mortal men out of clay and water."
Prometheus went and begged Zeus to have pity for the mortals and let them live and Zeus agrees to let them live but only because Zeus offered him an offer he couldn't pass up but little did Zeus know that Prometheus had a trick up his sleeve for Zeus
"In your infinite kindness, Will you not permit my poor creatures to cast"
"As long as your helpless creatures honor the mighty lord"
"they offered zeus greatest of the imortals, the best of their food. offering of entire animals, even though they themselves often live in hunger
This part of the story starts the feud between Zeus and Prometheus because Zeus realizes the He was tricked by Prometheus to pick the wrong heap of ox meat so he is outraged and took fire away from the humans and because of this Prometheus stole it back.
After the sacrifice Zeus is infatuated that he deceived him and he sentences Prometheus to a lifetime full of suffering but what Zeus didn't know is that Prometheus knows the women that could potentially end Zeus's ruling and he promises to not tell him until he lets him free. This shows the fighting between gods.
"Your fate will teach Titans and Olympians alike that no one may treat me as an equal and disobey my commands"
"Now my mother told me that you will marry a goddess whose son will be greater than his father... I still will not reveal the name of the goddess whose marriage you should fear!"
"I intend for her to be an evil gift..I will call her Pandora...I will send her down to earth with a sealed jar that contains multitudes of evil..as soon as she removes the lid all of its contents- except for hope- will fly forth"
When Zeus talks about creating a women out of clay and giving her a box that releases all evil into the world and among men and only hope will be left in the box this represents the fall of man and how zeus imposed it on all men because of his spite for what prometheus did
Zeus than also punishes Prometheus by sending a great flood that he hopes will wipe out the human race but prometheus hears word of this before The flood starts and he warns his son and they survive the flood in a chest and then they eventually restart the human race after the flood is over
